Guys With Kids Preview: Clips From NBC's Comedy Starring Jesse Bradford And Anthony Anderson

Joining NBC's comedy line-up this fall is Guys with Kids, a series that focuses on men in their thirties who are trying to adjust to life as parents. The clips we have from the pilot give us a look at some of the banter between the male characters on the show.

Created by Jimmy Fallon, Charlie Grandy and Amy Ozols, Guys with Kids stars Jesse Bradford, Zach Cregger and Anthony Anderson as three relatively new dads who are also friends. Also among the cast are Tempestt Bledsoe (The Cosby Show), Sara Rue (Popular) and Jamie Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos). NBC has this comedy set to air on Wednesday nights (8:30 p.m.) after Animal Practice, which puts it up against ABC's comedy lineup, unless ABC shifts things around this year, which seems unlikely. Here's the cast photo and the network's official description for the series.

From Emmy winner and executive producer Jimmy Fallon comes an absurdly funny new comedy about three thirty-something dads trying to hold on to their youth, while holding onto their new babies' hands. Easy, right? Thankfully Chris (Jesse Bradford, "The West Wing"), Nick (Zach Cregger, "Friends with Benefits") and Gary (Anthony Anderson, "Law & Order") have each other to help navigate their survival as new dads, while still trying desperately to remain dudes.Balancing work or staying at home, painfully married or happily divorced, they know that taking care of the little ones while maintaining a social life is a daily challenge. Whether it's hosing the little squirt down in the kitchen sink or hitting the bar strapped with a baby björn, these guys are on a roller-coaster adventure – parenting like you (and they) have never seen before. Also starring are Emily Jamie Lynn Sigler "The Sopranos") and Tempestt Bledsoe "The Cosby Show"). Someone once said it is much easier to become a father than to be one. These three guys are about to find out just how true that is.

And here are a couple of clips, which give us an idea of what we're in for with this one.

If I didn't know this was headed for NBC, I'd think it was more suited for TBS, or ABC Family (if the cable network were looking to aim for something family oriented but geared more toward males). And as much as I try not to discriminate against multi-camera comedies, Whitney being the only other one set up for NBC's fall line-up at present doesn't exactly help this new show there. With that said, I like the cast and I'll reserve full judgment until I at least see the pilot.
